Hi,
i have a Toshiba Satellite® A105-S4084 Notebook PC, since 2006 ...
i didn't get any restore disc.
when i try to restore to the factory settings by holding down 0, there is only beeps, and nothing prompt it to have the system reset.
is it possible that it doesn't had a recovery folder on his HDD ?
Any help will be graciously appreciated.!!!

If you have not done a custom install and zapped the recovery partition, then try plugging in a USB keyboard and using that.

Failing that, did you not create a set of recovery DVD's using the Windows based Recovery Disk Creator, if not and your system is still bootable, worth doing it now and use them to do a restore.
